LAWTON, Okla._A northwest Lawton family is out of their home temporarily after a fire started in a bedroom closet.

Fire crews responded to the house in Mission Village, off of I-44 near Rogers Lane, a little before 2:00 p.m. and had the flames down within minutes. All of the fire damage is in the bedroom and closet, but fire officials say there is smoke damage throughout the house.

No one was injured in the fire.
